Dinner in The Sky - Starry Dinner - Sunday 6 June 2021 h 19.45 - 21.00 - With the chef Francesco Sposito of Taverna Estia

Dinner in The Sky arrives for the first time in Campania and with an unprecedented gastronomic program: a parade of starred chefs and the master pizza maker Franco Pepe who will prepare, for the first time in the world, pizza at a height of 50 meters.
From 2 to 6 June in Naples and then from 10 to 13 June in Caserta, Dinner in The Sky is organized by W.I.P. COMMUNICATION by Vincenzo Moriello and Vittorio Piccirillo in collaboration with DINNER IN THE SKY ITALIA by Stefano Burotti and with the participation of Kimbo, platinum sponsor, and Pepsi Max gold sponsor. All appointments will be held in safety and in compliance with all anti Covid regulations to offer a unique experience, an original combination of haute cuisine and high altitude.
There are 7 starred chefs who will cook suspended between heaven and earth: Salvatore Bianco from Il Comandante - Romeo Hotel, Adriano Dentoni from La dispensa di Armatore, Domenico Iavarone from Josè Restaurant, Lino Scarallo from Palazzo Petrucci, Francesco Sposito from Taverna Estia, Luciano Villani de La Locanda del Borgo di Aquapetra and Marianna Vitale di Sud Restaurant. But not only. If Franco Pepe, the award-winning pizza maker from Caiazzo, has been entrusted with the first pizza of Dinner in The Sky, the chefs of J Japanese Restaurant - Giacomo Ignelzi and Kennedy Garduce - will sign an unrepeatable high-altitude sushi experience.
The Dinner in The Sky wine list was curated by Wine & Thecity which brings on board the restaurant, which Forbes has defined as "the most unusual on the planet", seven prestigious wineries: Astroni, DUBL, Feudi di San Gregorio, Frescobaldi, Mastroberardino, Cantine San Marzano, San Salvatore 1988.
Kimbo, platinum sponsor of Dinner in The Sky, will be the protagonist with its coffee specialists to offer a coffee tasting experience suspended between earth and sky. At sunset, Dinner in The Sky will celebrate aperitif time with long drinks by Tanya Future, the DJ set by Dario Guida, and the live Jazz by Dalila Del Giudice. From morning until evening (from 10.00 to 21.00) you can therefore book your experience on board: from breakfast to afternoon coffee, from lunch to gourmet snacks, from aperitifs to starred dinners. The Baccalaria, Litho 55, Wapo natural food restaurants will sign the Lunch in The Sky in Naples. The Sunrise, La Bulla, Tre Farine, Dolce & Salato and Contemporary Pastry restaurants will be on stage in Caserta.
<For about two years we have been working to bring Dinner In The Sky to Campania, which has been a worldwide success in 70 countries. For Naples and Caserta, the first cities in Southern Italy to host the most extravagant restaurant in the world, we have developed an articulated and varied calendar, certainly beyond the ordinary, which aims to offer different emotions as the hours go by. Each appointment will be reserved for only 22 guests who will be comfortably seated in an armchair, in absolute safety. From time to time, great names in the kitchen will alternate with them, starred chefs, pastry chefs and mixologists to offer unrepeatable dizziness of taste>, explain Vincenzo Moriello and Vittorio Piccirillo.
When and where
In Naples, Dinner in The Sky will be hosted from 2 to 6 June in the Giardini della Mostra d’Oltremare at the historic Fontana dell’Esedra which for the occasion will offer the public a show of lights, music and water games.
At Caserta Dinner in The Sky will be raised from 10 to 13 June in the setting of the Belvedere of San Leucio and the cost of the ticket will also include a guided tour of the Silk Museum thanks to the collaboration with the municipal administration.
Tickets will be on sale exclusively online at www.etes.it starting from May 5th
How does access to Dinner in The sky work?
Dinner in The Sky is a 5-ton platform that rises up to 50 meters in height lifted on 16 steel cables by a 120-ton crane. In the center there is a table for 22 guests who are secured to the armchairs by comfortable and safe harnesses. During the event there will be a professional team of event managers and technicians on site. Before getting on the platform, guests are greeted with a welcome drink in the Village at the base: an open-air design lounge to prepare for the great emotion. Then, two at a time, they will get on the platform and the security personnel will take care of fastening them to the seats, in Formula 1 style. Once everyone has taken their seats, a 10-second countdown will begin to climb to a height of fifty. meters, where the event will take place.
The numbers of Dinner in The Sky around the world
5 thousand events - 126 starred chefs - 5 continents - 70 countries in the world - 64 cities

Naples’ Volcanic Wines - Wine Spectator - Robert Camuto

The first morning I woke in western Naples’ Campi Flegrei area, the view from my hotel terrace seemed paradisiacal.
Looking down the verdant hillsides, I took in the late-summer panorama of the glistening Gulf of Naples framed by the islands Capri and Ischia.
Then I noticed the smell: A putrid odor of rotten eggs seemed to have crept in on the morning breeze.
I quickly learned from other guests that this was not the fault of bad plumbing or pollution, but is the natural calling card of one of Europe’s largest active volcanic zones.
The Campi Flegrei (or Phlegraean Fields) is one giant smoldering super-volcano, with dozens of craters spread over about 80 square miles—much of that within the densely populated city limits of Naples, one of Europe’s most historic and chaotic metropolises. In the nearby countrysides are craters that look like large mining pits, where fumaroles release potent-smelling sulfurous gas.
Talk about volcanic terroir! In recent years, volcanic soils have become a hot topic in wine. But aside from Sicily’s Mount Etna, many of these so-called volcanic places haven’t been active for thousands of years.
At the other end of the spectrum of activity, Campi Flegrei is in a class of its own.
“This is not like Etna where you look up and see the volcano. Here you live in the volcano,” declares Gerardo Vernazzaro, the 46-year-old winemaker at his family’s Cantine Degli Astroni winery, named after the spent crater—now covered in forest and turned into a nature reserve—that sprawls miles below its oldest vineyard.
Naturally, there is a kind of fatalism here. Predictions are that one day it will catastrophically all blow up again. The last big eruption here, nearly 500 years ago, created the 430-foot Monte Nuovo over one week, and that mountain has slowly grown in height over the last 50 years. The once-chic Roman resort of Baiae, where Julius Caesar had a getaway, sunk into the sea following a seismic shift after the fall of the Empire. It’s now an underwater archaeological park.
Perhaps because the earth moves so much here, Campi Flegrei wines—principally the light Piedirosso reds and the local version of the white variety Falanghina—tend to be drunk quickly and locally.
“The wines here were born with the concept of carpe diem,” says Vernazzaro. “The idea is: Better an egg today than a hen tomorrow.”
Gerardo Vernazzaro checks out some of Cantine Degli Astroni's Piedirosso grapes as the family winery approaches harvest time.

Piedirosso makes some of the most appealing, easy-drinking reds I enjoyed this summer. Also known as Per e Palummo, Piedirosso is grown throughout Campania, including on Ischia island. Fresh, with low-to-moderate levels of alcohol (12 to 13.5 percent), the wines show red fruit and spice, becoming more savory and minerally as they evolve over time.
The image comes to mind of Gamay with a suntan.
Piedirosso—actually a family of related vines of different biotypes—is a late-ripening variety harvested in October that doesn’t seem to mind even record-breaking hot summers like 2022.
“Piedirosso is like we Neapolitans,” Vernazzaro says. “It likes the heat and sun.”
Astroni is in its fourth generation of farming here. Starting with the 2000 vintage, when Gerardo was finishing enology school up north, the family created a commercial label to market their wine. Astroni’s Piedirosso Campi Flegrei bottlings both come from the organically certified Camaldoli vineyard of volcanic sands and tuff stone. The Colle Rotondella bottling is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, and the Tenuta Camaldoli is made from a selection of grapes, from the vineyard’s best-exposed sections, that are fermented in cherry wood vats and aged in chestnut barrels.
